Kabam’s newest release, The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age has reached its first milestone.
Following its official debut on March 21, the game attracted more than 250,000 new players. Now, less than four weeks later, the game has welcomed over one million new users.
“We’re elated that fans of The Hobbit have responded so enthusiastically to The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age and we’re incredibly proud of how the game has performed in such a short time,” said Kabam Studios president Andrew Sheppard. “With our mobile game, The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth remaining popular on the iOS and Android charts, The Hobbit Film Trilogy has inspired one of Kabam’s hottest mobile game properties to date.”
The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age is a browser-based game which focuses on fast-paced tactical combat; players can join alliances and partner up with other users in an epic online war, in which they can play as popular characters from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – such as Bilbo, Thorin, and Radagast.
The game is available in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish via Facebook, Kabam.com, and the Google Chrome Store.
Kabam’s other Hobbit-based title, The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth, is available on mobile platforms as an empire-building strategy game. Users can download the game from the Google Chrome Store.
